The Propane Education & Research Council is a check-off program established, governed, and funded by the propane industry to finance and promote educational outreach, research and development, and safety and training efforts. Propane is best known as a fuel for cooking and home heating, but propane autogas is a long-established fuel for vehicles, too. From commercial work trucks, to bi-fuel police cruisers, to delivery vans used to transport food or linens, a variety of fleet owners are reducing emissions and increasing profits with propane autogas.
Many of PERC’s online tools and resources were specifically created to help the growing number of fleets on the road today find success with propane autogas. Here are a few of PERC’s most popular online resources:
